Southern Maine Community College is holding three On-the-Spot Acceptance Days that allow prospective students to complete the entire admissions process for the fall semester for free in a single visit.

These On-the-Spot Acceptance Days will be held from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at SMCC’s South Portland and Brunswick campuses on Thursday, July 18; Tuesday, Aug. 6; and Wednesday, Aug. 21.

Prospective students should bring proof of high school graduation (high school diploma, final high school transcript, or GED/HiSET); transfer students should bring official college transcripts in a sealed envelope. No appointment is necessary.

Students will be able to complete their application for free, take their placement tests, start the financial aid process and sign up for new student orientation. Representatives from Housing, Billing, Disability Services, and Security and Transportation will also be available to answer questions.

The Admissions Office is also open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday for students to apply. Fall classes begin Monday, Aug. 26.
